SOURCE: My Ipod touch 16G first generation. wont respond

1. Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.
2. Open iTunes and sync the iPod as normal.
3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.

My Ipod Touch 32GB appears to be locked, how would I go about unlocking it?

Normally there's a button on top of the Ipod Touch that you would need to press first for the screen to show you the message "Slide to unlock". After getting that, you can just touch the button on the screen sideways (like sliding your fingers to it) to unlock it.

However if the problem persist, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following:
1. Connect your IPod to your computer (the first one IPod sync with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.

If you still can't unlock IPod by connecting it to the
computer that you use to manage the songs, you can restore your iPod to it's factory settings using Itunes.

Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.

Although, after restoring the Ipod and you are still having problems with unlocking it, the problem could be with the screen of your Ipod. In which case, you would need to go to any Apple store near you or you can try contacting Apple. Phone numbers for each country varies, you can click here to check the Phone number for your country.

Hope this information helps!

Ipod touch is disabled and wont let me put in my pass code to unlock it when i get to itunes!

If your iPod touch is locked by a 4-digit passcode, the only way to get past it is to force the unit into restore mode by doing the following:

1. Start iTunes and Plug the iPod touch in to your computer via the sync cable. This could be firewire and/or USB.

2. Hold the sleep/wake button(the button at the top) and the menu button(round button at the bottom) down at the same time. Keep them both pressed until you see the 'restore' screen (an iPod cable and an iTunes disc symbol) on the iPod touch. If the ipod turns off or shows the "Slide to power down", just wait and try again. It takes about 10 seconds. Once the restore screen shows, Release the buttons.

3. Windows should quickly "install driver software" for a few seconds. iTunes should now display the iPod touch, along with a message that the iPod touch is in recovery mode. Click the RESTORE button in iTunes to restore the iPod touch.

Please note that doing this will erase the contents of the iPod touch -- that's how the system is designed to work: a passcode lock is meant to protect the data on the iPod.

You can unlock your IPOD Touch passcode or password by following these simple steps.
  • Connect your IPOD Touch to iTunes
  • Press or Hold the power and home keys 10 seconds.
  • Screen goes black, now release the power button
  • Make sure you do not release the Home key until your iTunes says "We have detected an itouch in recovery mode."
  • After this its simple all you got to do is a simple restore using your iTunes

I just bought mine from online..and i dled itunes and put music on there...but its stuck on the slide to open screen and i wont read my slide..and also the lock is up there but everytime i tried turning it...

Hold the sleep/wake until the device powers off.

Use the Five Rs to recover the iPod. You will lose the data that is currently on it if you restore but you can always re-sync the data to the iPod.
